Lister pump dating
Judging by the setup this seems to have it should have an ML flick mag.
I will try to remove the stuck piston today, it has been soaking overnight and hopefully all will go well. After soaking overnight in 5-56, I managed to get the piston loose with the help of a 5" length of angle iron in the spokes. Closeup of the piston, not too shabby apart from a broken ring. The little hole you can see on the left actually goes to a tap on the side of the head, would that not let water from the jacket into the cylinder? The inlet valve in very good condition, surprisingly it was the inlet, not the exhaust valve that was stuck on this.Throughout the years of production, the engine changed very little.The fuel tank was moved from halfway up the engine to the top, and the shaft-drive magneto was replaced by a chain-driven unit in the early 1930s.The Lister D is a 1 1/2 hp stationary engine built between 1926-1964 by R A Lister and Company of Dursley.It is popular with newcomers to the stationary engine hobby with un-restored examples available for as little as £50, plenty of spares and various re-manufactured parts and decals.First, the show, which in its first outing was content to let the sprawling family’s interrelationships emerge in allusive snatches, here takes every opportunity to fill in the blanks with the sort of bald exposition people who know each other well don’t need.
So in the first story, where Thomas Sadoski’s Matt catches a very unwanted glimpse of the primal scene when he bursts in on parents James Brolin and Dianne Wiest on the sofa, we’re immediately flooded with the details of everyone’s life.
Maintenance is very simple, and the replacement of any wearing parts is at low cost.
Although the Lister Pump was originally designed for fresh domestic water applications, in recent years it has also been used extensively for other functions such as: The maximum suction lift including pipe friction is 25ft (7.6m) at sea level.
This figure is reduced by 1ft (0.3m) for every 100ft (305m) increase in altitude. If the length exceeds 150ft (45m) it may advisable to increase the size.
The pipe should be as straight as possible, use long sweep bends for changes in direction.
Life In Pieces’ second episode suggests the show’s ambitions are a shade lower than the pilot led viewers (and this reviewer) to believe.
